Double layout step-by-step by Nicky Amber

Double layouts can sometimes be a bit daunting to even the most experienced scrapper, in such cases I find a sketch very helpful. 

I have created a Christmas double layout step-by-step using some papers from the My Minds Eye - Sophie range...which aren't actually Christmas papers but I thought they suited the theme well.


Step 1.  I have used two sheets of cardstock as the background.  Cut patterned paper to 10x10 inches and place over the top.
TIP:  If you have trouble lining up your double layouts, tape them together on the back then separate when you are finished.

Step 2.  Cut paper to 12 x 8 inches and place over the top.

Step 3.  Cut two strips of 12 x 4 inches.

Step 4.  Attach photos.

Step 5.  Add journaling.




In this example, I have used:

Remember sketches are just a guideline to follow, feel free to change any part of the sketch to suit your style - in my example I have used a bracket die cut instead of the 10 x 10 inch piece of paper and used four photos instead of five..

Happy creating...xxxooo
